SWIMMING POOL (2003), dir. François Ozon
Starring Charlotte Rampling and Ludivine Sagnier
The two women, the handsome waiter, the hours of idleness, the swimming pool: it sounds like, and on one level is, a scenario worthy of Eric Rohmer.
But Mr. Ozon is as perverse as he is resourceful, so he slyly turns his delicate study in generational and cross-cultural sexual rivalry into a suspense thriller. There is a mystery lurking in Julie's past...
''Swimming Pool'' is rated R. It's summertime. It's the south of France. It's a French movie. Who said anything about clothes?
